SIMPSONS MOVIE Writers And Director Revealed!!

Merrick saw the Bee Gees' SGT. PEPPER'S LONELY HEARTS CLUB BAND in HD last night and has now lost all will to live. Such hideous cruelty...


Talkbackers for yesterday's article regarding THE SIMPSONS MOVIE were intrigued by our source's allusion to "original writers" scripting the film.

Fair enough...in this movie, the script is paramount (no offense, Fox).

This morning, an Austrailian publication called The Melbourne Age shed some light on who will be handling these monumental duties. According to The Melbourne Age, THE SIMPSONS MOVIE is written by Matt Groening, James L. Brooks, Al Jean, Brian Scully, Ian Maxtone-Graham, George Meyer, David Mirkin, Mike Reiss, Matt Selman, John Swartzwelder, and Jon Vitti (thanks to Skel for pointing us to this article).

In related news, Reuters is reporting that David Silverman, co-director of Pixar's MONSTERS, INC., director of many SIMPSONS episodes (and now the series' "supervising director") is helming the movie.

A Fox press release indicates that Albert Brooks, Minnie Driver and Erin Brockovich will be guest voices in the film.

I've received no refutation, or confirmation, regarding the plot point referenced in yesterday's article.


Talkbackers are GO!

    He knows the characters, but the rest of the guys writing have been working with them for almost a lifetime. You can only do so much, and if Conan was still on as a writer, he'd be deteriorating same as them.

    Simpson dropping the F-Bomb

    by stlfilmwire

    Perhaps he could try a "get rich quick scheme" by trying to cross breed a fox with a duck. You know, he could be trying to create a furry duck. When it his time to feed the new animal, he has to call out, "Here fucky, fucky, fucky!" God, this is stupid.

    Monty Burns has poisoned the water supply by dumping chemicals from the plant. Erin Brockovich turns up to expose the plan. Homer, "Fuck you Brockovich! I'll drink anything I want!" Gulp, gulp, gulp. Blood spouts from every orifice. Homer, "D'oh!"

    I said it in the other talkback, but...

    by DanielKurland

    The plot should deal with Sideshow Bob, and the fact that his last episode ended with him, his wife, and his child vowing revenge would be the perfect springboard for this. Obviously MORE would happen in the movie, but it would make for a good set up for action to go into motion.

  • April 4, 2006, 10:17 a.m. CST

    Be a shame if there was no Futurama cameo in this.

    by Chastain-86

    What an enormous opportunity to 1) give a subtle nod to the fans, and 2) generate some more interest in those characters for the eventual direct-to-DVD films. Bite my shiny metal ass!

    Looks like some old and new writers

    by BizarroJerry

    As mentioned, that Graham guy is a more recent addition, but there's someone like John Swartzwelder who (at least according to imdb) has writing credits on eps going from 1990 until today. And does anyone remember the days when guest voices were barely advertised, sometimes uncredited and the actors weren't playing themselves or even a character looking like them? Those were the days, kids... now, get me my dentures!

  • April 4, 2006, 10:19 a.m. CST

    Ian Maxtone Graham...

    by vinceklortho

    I believe was there in the early episodes. If he didn't write, he had his hand and was producing. I would of loved to see some of the guys who went on to do bigger things such as Bill Oakley or Greg Daniels, whom I assume is busy with The Office right now. Those guys produced/wrote some of the best episodes. Obviously Conan is a huge stretch to be involved in the background process. Maybe they will get him for a voice cameo. He did, however, in the fourth and fifth seasons, produce pretty much all the episodes. He did only write a couple, but he had his hand on a couple of those classics. I did hear, too, which makes this classics Simpsons news that they are releasing a couple of fake scripts across the internet to curb such nerds as myself. So, if you see a script, which I'm sure this site will proclaim once one surfaces...should be interesting. I hope they release a really shitty one that will worry us fans. Hilarious!

    by emeraldboy

    One thing becomes very clear that men who ruled and guided the show threw its first seasons were sam simon, brad bird, al jean, Mike reiss, jon Viti,john Swartzwelder. Missing from this list are Sam simon and Brad Bird. I like the simpsons and have listed before what my favourite episodes are. But with out bird and Simon, I have small doubts. But they are minor.

    by emeraldboy

    When they say the real Erin Brockovich is in the film, they dont mean Julia Roberts and thank god for that, Julia Roberts cant do comedy. Erin Brockovich is a real person.

  • April 4, 2006, 11:08 a.m. CST

    What's even more hilarious about Erin Brockavich...

    by vinceklortho

    is that the Simpsons even proclaimed her the "prostitute with a heart of gold"! Wonder how Bart is going to deal with that one.

  • April 4, 2006, 11:16 a.m. CST

    Conan...

    by Poacher

    Conan is only credited with two or three episodes but he was involved in the writing of at least two seasons worth of shows. The person who is credited with writing the ep. is pretty much arbitrary. Sometimes it's the person who wrote the initial story for it, or wrote the majority of it, but often times it's difficult to say.

  • April 4, 2006, 11:21 a.m. CST

    speaking of people who used to work there: Brad Bird

    by HypeEndsHere

    throw money at him and John Scwartzwelder

  • April 4, 2006, 11:35 a.m. CST

    Schwartzwelder

    by chickychow

    is the name I most associate with great eps. His is on so many that I'm surprised this guy never really took off and became a really big deal. No matter... But Minnie Driver and Erin Brockivich? What year is this, 2000?

  • April 4, 2006, 11:43 a.m. CST

    sounds good

    by quadrupletree

    I still think the premise sounds like they aren't really trying but that's a solid group of writers so I guess we'll see. On a personal level though, I don't know if the boat already sailed for a Simpson's movie for me, no matter how good it is. It's just too little too late. Unless they use the medium to it's fullest to do something that could never be done on the TV series it's just going to be one good, long, solid episode of the Simpsons. And that's a rental to me at this point...

  • April 4, 2006, 11:46 a.m. CST

    Schwartzwelder

    by Isidore

    He gives me hope. He wrote some of the all time classics in the glory years. If a list was made of the greatest Simpsons episodes his name would be in 7 of the top ten I'm sure. Conan would get 1, he wasn't there long enough for more.

    by Z Daddy

    Will there be any FLUBBER in this movie?????

  • April 4, 2006, 12:06 p.m. CST

    some people think Schwartzwelder is a psuedonym

    by HypeEndsHere

    he only wrote for SNL from 85-86, a short pilot in 96 called "Pistol Pete", and 58 episodes of the Simpsons. he provides no DVD commentaries and there are no photos of him. he did self publish 2 books: "The Time Machine Did It" (http://tinyurl.com/omtlc), and "Double Wonderful". i believe he is Charlie Kaufman. (okay, that last bit was silly, but the rest is all true)

    Bring Back Grimey

    by pubdef

    Yes, that's right, the plot should bring back Frank Grimes, Homer's nemesis. I actually have a Simpson's diarama of the break room in my office with a talking Frank Grimes figure, as well as the bottle of hydrocloric acid Homer almost drank. The gradual deteoriation of Grimey's mind, leading to his untimely demise, and Homer talking in his sleep at the funeral were the stuff of Simpson's gold. I know there is no way to bring him back, but this is one of the episodes that makes me laugh just to think about it.

  • April 4, 2006, 12:15 p.m. CST

    you can tell a good simpsons from a bad simpsons if

    by flamingrunt

    the celebrities are playing themselves. ironically when they needed star power and name dropping in the early series the celebs would go uncredited or play other people. And they were brilliant. But the newer episodes are solely based on celebrity hijinks. And as such are universally dreadfull. If those are the only famous voices in the movie then thats probably a good thing

    Conan was alright...

    by Armer

    but my favourate writers were Bill Oakley and Josh Weinstein. They did great work on Futurama too! Also Ricky Gervais was in the new ep, and although his character was very similar to his own, he didn't literally play himself. mind you not many people would know who he was...

  • April 4, 2006, 12:42 p.m. CST

    Futurama...

    by Ender's Jeesh

    ...was as funny from the get-go as The Simpson's were in their prime (not funni-ER, but just AS). A crime how that show got screwed. Definitely will be a futurama shout-out in some form, there HAS to be. Rambling Granpa, socially aware Lisa, blissfully ignorant Homer... these are the hallmarks of great Eps. Movie is going to be fantastic. Signed, Bender Bending Rrrrrrodriguez.

  • April 4, 2006, 12:46 p.m. CST

    John Swartzwelder rocks, but...

    by PushTheButton

    ...he wrote "The Regina Monologues" "The Frying Game" "The Lastest Gun in the West" and "Kill the Alligator and Run". Four of the worst episodes of the past 6 years. I'm glad he is on teh team, but I think James L Brooks and David Mirkin are the two reliable locks for this movie. I'm very glad they are on.

  • April 4, 2006, 12:52 p.m. CST

    YES!

    by LHombreSiniestro

    No Tim Long or Marc Wilmore!

  • April 4, 2006, 12:53 p.m. CST

    has Brooks ever gotten a writing credit before?

    by chickychow

    I don't think so... I'm predicting he'll be more of a supervisor than a hands-on writer on this. Still, I like that's he's involved.

  • April 4, 2006, 12:55 p.m. CST

    Frank Grimes!

    by vinceklortho

    Glad somebody acknowledged how hilarious and odd that episode was. Consequently, I read that Ricky Gervais said that was his favorite episode in a recent entertainment weekly. The only time Frank could get a good laugh at Homer, Homer quickly backs his car up into Franks. How could you not love that?

  • April 4, 2006, 12:58 p.m. CST

    by vinceklortho

    the guy who was hunting down Homer as the Beer Baron. Which, by the way, was a hilarious episode. Overlooking Springfield, he vows he will take down the Beer Baron and then Homer yells from below, "No, you won't" "YES, I will." "Won't..." Odd and quirky Simpsons that I hope they add in the movie, instead of Homer doing goofy pratfalls or getting hurt in some way that they seem to resort to now.

    next to DOMINO, the 2nd worst film of all times is Bee Gees' SGT. PEPPER'S LONELY HEARTS CLUB BAND. BUT, at least the latter atrocity is "so bad its funny" rather than "so bad i want to kill everyone involved (including the hot anorexic chick)"

    by Flim Springfield

    They could have put out a movie anytime and made a ton of money, even if it wasn't very good. By waiting for their 20th anniversary, it makes the movie a celebration, and even if it is basically three episodes mashed together, it will be fun to see it in the theatre as part of the "birthday party".

    Now I can die in peace. Still, on the subject of Simpsons on DVD, why the hell did they edit the "Bart the Daredevil" episode. Homer falling off the cliff while on the gurney was the funniest moment ever. Yes we're down to season 7 on DVD but still, it alway bugged me.

  • April 4, 2006, 4:15 p.m. CST

    Re: Bart the Daredevil

    by Flim Springfield

    If you mean the view of Homer falling down the cliff the second time, that wasn't in the original episode. That was added in season 4's clip show.

    i know but...

    by nofate

    I clearly remember it being in the original airing (my uncle had it on tape, that's when i first saw it) It lost some of its hilarity by being thrown into a clip show as opposed to being a part of the original episode.

    My understanding is...

    by Fried Gold

    that in its hey-day several ideas were pitched by a number of writers on a team and then one writer was selected to write the script. Later episodes tend to be one man jobs. Is this an old-style group effort?

    by StudioPlant69

    The lawsuit against PG&E claimed chromium 6 was responsible for 1000's of different medical problems. PG&E rather than face a lenthy court battle settled for 333 million. Sadly most of the medical evidence came in after the settlement and would have proved their innocence. The EPA does not list chromium 6 as a human carcinogen and the levels in Hinkley were less than 1 in 1,000,000. It would take greater than 25 parts per million to even be a risk. Also it is well known that people who were her friends got more money from the settlement... You shouldn't believe what you see in a movie...

Bart -You can't possibly expect us to sit here for a HALF an Hour. I'm going to the kitchen. Lisa -I'm going to use the bathroom. Marge -I'm going to stay here and think about products I may want to purchace. Hmmm...Ooohh. But of course in reverse. "It seems like I should stop...here...but..I can't" BTW the Lemon Tree episode has one of my favorite lines: "Shake harder boy!"

    Also the tipping point was...

    Who shot Mr. Burns. The season and a half leading up to it has some of the best episodes, and season seven following has great stuff. But, it was all down hill from then on. Rather than having every episode be solid and a truly great episode every couple of weeks, they actually started having mediocre episodes start to appear in seven with great episodes becoming fewer and fewer. It took time before it became a shell of its former glory, but that was when it stopped improving and started declining.

    Just Because Conan Was Credited With Only 4 Episodes

    by flamingrunt

    doesnt mean he was locked in a cupboard for the rest of the season. They all sit round a table pitching their ideas for every episode. So his jokes and influence will have been throughout the season and not just 4 episodes

    The "New York" episode is my fav episode ever.

    "I've got Mountain Dew or Crab Juice". "Bleugh! I'll take a Crab Juice". Very funny. Klav Kalash!

    And it appears the spaceship has been conquered by a race of giant ants. I would like to welcome our new insect overlords. As a media person, I'd be helpful in rounding up people to toil in your underground sugar caves... sorry, simpsons movie. mmmmmm...movie.. seriously that was one of the best eps. Brockman must be in movie.

    Who can take any of you fuckers seriously? Seriously??

    I've seen maybe 4 episodes that have left me feeling a little disapointed. Being able to count the bad episodes on one hand of a 13 year running TV show - makes said show a fucking winner! And personally, I like there being no rush for this film. I like the time being taken. Star Trek the next generation was so hard core trying to get to the big screen and both show and films suffered as a result. Side note to the Southpark bashers. I hear you all, I watch the show.... something just aint adding up. Can't you see, these shows don't suck. You do. sad fuckers.

    did Bart make the announcement on FOX?

    by Max Meanie

    There were animated Bart teasers on last Sunday's episode to break the news about the film but at the 2nd act break, FOX news spilled the beans fucking that up. Did they ever show Bart's announcement or did they pull it because FOX spoiled the news?

  • April 5, 2006, 12:15 p.m. CST

    Bart didn't announce it, they just showed the teaser

    The Simpsons may have gone down hill recently, but still.....it's most clever writing and better than 99% of the other crap they put on TV anymore.
